Modern Family Star Talks Cosmetic Surgery

Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara (aka Gloria) remains one of Hollywood’s sexiest TV stars and like her co-star Julie Bowen, she isn’t afraid to talk about cosmetic enhancement.

When recently asked by StyleCaster, the actress had this to say:

“Yeah, I would definitely do something. Not something crazy but little things here or there. Hopefully, when the time comes and I’m considering it, there will be even better treatments out there.”

Vergara is certainly right – the future of cosmetic enhancement is looking bright. Scientists are even developing new treatments that involve injecting stem cells taken from a patient’s blood to banish wrinkles.

This isn’t the first time Vergara has talked cosmetic enhancement. Back in 2011, she offered up her two cents to Health Magazine.

“I don’t really think that plastic surgery can make you look young,” she told the mag. “It can make you look prettier, but if you go with the mentality of being young, I think that’s where accidents can happen.”

Trends in Cosmetic Enhancement

Sofia Vergara isn’t alone when it comes to her views on cosmetic enhancement. In recent years, the rates of both non-surgical and surgical procedures continue to see increases, despite a rocky economy.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more than 13.5 million non-surgical procedures (e.g., Botox injections, wrinkle fillers and laser hair removal) and over a million surgical procedures (e.g., breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and liposuction) were performed in 2011. Non-surgical procedures were up 5 percent from 2010, while surgical procedures were up 2 percent.
